I ran into this issue with two computers that both makers said shouldn't have an issue. I also contacted Microsoft about the problem and all they were able to do was scratch their heads.

My opinion is that the driver setup feature is failing for some reason, even with drivers that the OS should recognize and install.

I had to dual boot the machines or do a clean install for a positive install. I had a third machine that I had to drop kick the install three times before it would take.

Talk about the run around, Microsoft jacked me around even after I explained the issue when it came time to get a activation code. One of the reasons I am shifting to Linux before moving to Vista. Sorry, Microsoft I don't want to go where you are going.
